iowa will help at some level insulate here. >> reporter: de blasio told the "new york times" clinton initially told him it would not be necessary for him to be a surrogate and campaign for her. the mayor went to iowa anyway. >> iowa is a state that emphasizes retail politics. you talk to people two at a time, five or ten at a time. you bring a bill de blasio there and he's speaking to ten people, 50 people, 100 people, it may not seem like a lot, but in a race where it's two or three points in either direction and the race between a hillary clinton and senator sanders is within the margin of error, every vote counts. >> reporter: iowa polls show clinton and her closest competitor bernie sanders will likely come out on top. as for the republicans, ted cruz and donald trump will expected to lead the pack. well, ernie, after iowa and new hampshire, we can expect candidates who are not finishing
the iowa caucus starts 7 central people, 8:00 eastern, and we should have information for you about results on our 10:00 newscast. ernie: everybody is waiting for it. thank you very much for that. we continue our discussion. joining me, two special guests, jeanne zaino and christopher hahn. what do you think? de blasio in iowa. what do you make of that? >> he has a lot of making up to do with the clinton team. that's why he's knocking on doors. that's got to explain it. >> we should have said i'm with her on meet the press and he wouldn't there. he'd be in new york having a hoagie. >> in the cold iowa winter. ernie: democrats, who's going to take this? >> i think clinton, it's tight, the "des moines register", the best poll we have has sanders within three points of clinton. i think because clinton is so well organized, she'll probably pull it out.
side. ernie: surprises? what do you think? >> i think if there's going to be a surprise, it might be with ted cruz and rubio finish as opposed to trump. everyone thinks trump will win. i believe organizations matter in primaries, especially in caucuses on february 1st in iowa where it's freezing cold. people have a blizzard coming. cruz has a strong organization. so does rubio. trump, celebrity, everybody knows his name, people may or may not like him, no organization on the ground in we'll see. ernie: what's the winner take away? what's it do? >> the winner gets huge momentum going into new hampshire and down to south carolina. they get name recognition, poll numbers, they get money most importantly. this is really a game of beating expectations, not just winning, but beating expectations. it's not about who comes in first but who does better. ernie: that's a good point. >> watch what happens to the ben carson voters. i don't believe the 10 percent that the "des moines register"
i think he'll finish around 4%. if they go to cruz, cruz will win iowa. if they get split between cruz and rubio, rubio beats expectations. trump wins. it's not good for cruz. he put everything on iowa. >> a must win for cruz. ernie: a lot of emphasis on polls. we know it's not that great to follow them. republican side, does trump take it? >> i think that cruz is likely to take it. it's all about turn out. if it's high, it will favor trump and sanders. if it's low, as it usually is, it will favor the organized. that would be somebody like a ted cruz and a hillary clinton. again, for cruz, this is a must win. trump can lose this and go and win in new hampshire. if cruz loses, he has nothing to do. >> he put all his eggs in this basket. that's a problem. you've got to manage expectations. he made the expectations about him winning in iowa. a couple of weeks ago looked good. not so much now.
>> it's so exciting. >> christmas eve for politics. ernie: it really is. a long way to go. we'll watch what happens. thank you. come back again. we'll talk about it tomorrow. thank you so much for joining us. let's talk about the other stories making news. these stories. the world health organization has declared an international emergency over the spread of zika virus. the transmission is from the bite of a mosquito. symptoms are usually mild. health officials are concerned about pregnant women. the virus may be linked to a birth defect that causes babies to be born with incomplete brain development. >> the experts agree that a causal relationship between the zika infection during pregnancy and microcephaly is strongly suspected. though not yet scientifically proven. ernie: nine cases have been reported in new york. all of the infected patients were travelers who returned to
